The former acting managing director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Joi Nunieh has finally appeared before the House of Reps Committee on NDDC.
Ms Nunieh was meant to appear before the committee on Thursday but couldn’t because of the presence of security agents stationed in her house to prevent her from making a physical appearance.
The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, who prevented the police from taking Nunieh away, had asked the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, to probe the invasion of the former NDDC boss.
It was alleged that the invasion was to prevent Nunieh from moving from Port Harcourt to Abuja to testify before the panel.
The former NDDC MD, however, finally made her appearance midday on Friday, addressing the Committee via Zoom.
Speaking at the hearing, Ms Nunieh told the lawmakers that she did not touch NDDC funds as reported.
Meanwhile, the House Committee on Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) has summoned the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Mr Godswill Akpabio, to appear and make presentations before it on Monday, July 20, 2020.
The committee also summoned the Managing Director of the commission Professor Kemebradikumo Pondei to appear before it on the same day.
This comes after the former MD of the NDDC, Joi Nunieh, on Friday gave her testimony at the House Committee on Public Hearing via zoom.
